Board of Trustees Appoints Interim President

Dr. Vanessa Snyder Appointed Interim President at Richmont

After extensive prayer and careful consideration, the Board of Trustees of Richmont Graduate University is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Vanessa Snyder as Interim President of the University. As a Richmont alumnus, experienced counselor, and accomplished professor, Dr. Snyder brings a wealth of experience and passion to this important post.

 Dr. Snyder will begin transitioning to the position immediately and will officially take over the role January 3, 2017.  Our current president, Bob Rodgers, has committed to work together with Dr. Snyder over the next several weeks to ensure a smooth transition.

 The Board of Trustees will continue the search for the next president of Richmont with the goal of naming a new president by fall of 2017.  Interim positions will be announced soon for filling Dr. Snyder’s current role as Dean of Clinical Affairs, as she will return to this position once a new president is named.  During this time of transition, Bob and Vanessa will be available for any questions or concerns you may have.

 The Board is excited about the recent growth and impact of Richmont Graduate University. We are committed to ensuring the University remains a leader in the education and training of professional counselors and ministers and to maintaining the unique Richmont environment as a place of healing, restoration, and transformation.
